Steve-O Is a Dreamboat for Animals

Published by PETA.

There are so many reasons to adore Steve-O. Here are just a few that I came up with off the top of my head:

1)      His vegan radiance. He told Peoplepets.com that his vegan diet “helps me build up my self-esteem. I feel good about it every time I eat a meal.” He notes that it’s had a positive impact on every aspect of his life.

2)      He’s become calmer, more loving, and more tolerant—and he credits his adorable adopted pooch, Walter, with helping him make the transformation.

3)      He’s the strong, silent type in his “I’m Not a Nugget” peta2 T-shirt—but he still speaks out against Ringling’s abuses of its young, old, and ailing elephants.

Considering that his comp-formation (that’s short for “compassionate transformation”) started not so long ago, I have a feeling that we’ll be adding more reasons why we (heart) Steve-O very soon. And if you haven’t started your own comp-formation, please follow Steve-O’s lead
